Do I have to pay the local services tax (LST) if I am self-employed or if I work from home?

Yes. If you are self-employed or work from home for an employer that does not withhold the tax, you are required to pay the appropriate LST to the taxing jurisdiction where you work. Access the Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development Municipal Statistics to find the LST rate and tax collector.
